Old vs. New
I am trying to decide between a 2002 k1200rs that's available, or perhaps looking to find another 2002-2004 one, or possibly getting a new k1200r sport. I've not ridden either bike, but have ridden the new k1200s, and have had a couple of previous r bikes. I like the look of the rs over the new bikes, and of course they're less expensive. But, I think the new brakes are probably to my liking. The older model has plenty of power for me, so that's not really a consideration. I'm mostly interested in a bike that will ride comfortably at freeway speeds for a few hours or so, but also handle well at low speeds around town. So, can anyone give me any insight on how the rs and the r sport might compare? Thanks.
